Arden Shore operates a group home in Waukegan, Illinois that houses up to seven boys, ages 10 – 18 years who are unable to thrive in typical home environments. The home is a safe and caring environment and dedicated staff provide the support the children need to overcome early traumatic experiences and grow into healthy adults. The support includes in-home therapy to help them develop tools for dealing with stress and handle conflict; structured activities to create stability, such as part-time jobs; and training to help them live independently on their own.
“(Staff) pick up on things that you never realized about yourself and you work on those things and get better as a person. After hard work, I am moving to a Transitional Living Program!”
